Update Ecuador trip 2022 July-August

Hello everyone, a little update on the group.

We still haven’t decided which name suits us best, but for sure something related to mud, it has been our companion all these days.
Yesterday was our acclimatization day, arriving at the refuge was already an adventure, we were greeted with a nice afternoon and the group enjoyed an active acclimatization pushing the 4×4.

We will keep you posted.
